    I worked at Appert's Foodservice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company was a family owned company and it focused on treating everyone the same. Customers, Employees, and stake holders. Nice open door policy.

    Cons

    The training was subpar and the expectations to make any money were unrealistic. They needed to change the pay structure to retain employees and have manageable goals.

    Advice to Management

    Change the pay structure to make sure each sales person can see an difficult, yet achievable goal. Focus on helping the salesperson grow their business by giving them more tools. i.e. a CRM

    Pros

    Health insurance was pretty good along with matching 401K plan that was competitive. Fellow sales employees were good to work with and very helpful with following up with customers.

    Cons

    Upper management was terrible, good ole boy club, very unrealistic, out of touch. Sales reps were blamed for everything, no mistakes, out of stocks, disgruntle drivers, miss picks, not competitive with product, pricing, long hours. Very high turn over after the buy out in sales and other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Your way or the highway is not a good way to manage, motivate or keep employees; company is not the same after the buy out; things have changed! Wake up and smell the coffee!

    Pros

    Great inside sales dept to help take orders, they were trying to keep up with the Bog Boys (US foods & Sysco) with technology

    Cons

    Hours always had to work Sundays

    Advice to Management

    more coverage to give reps weekends off on a rotating basis

    Never have the same day twice.

    Pros

    Cons

    Management Management and then theres management. Nepatism is rampant. If youre not an ass kisser, you wont be there long. Zero tolerance for new comers who make honest mistakes as they learn the ropes. Judgemental, closed minded, racist, and crude

    Advice to Management

    Stop MICRO Managing, Stop giviong overloaded sales reps with meaningless tasks they are busy enough. Get some people skills and remember, .people in glass houses.............
